I peruse this thread more than others, and whereas it's always full of "win", I have to praise two dudes: My fellow Bay Area Bro Justin, who has, for better in this instance, utilized StyFo for his benefit, looking great at the Ring Jacket / Khakis of Carmel meetup, and Kulata, who consistently dresses way better than I ever will.
